The Scout on why managers should consider using chip on the Man Utd star

Marcus Rashford (£7.2m) has the form and fixtures to richly reward managers willing to play their Triple Captain chip in Gameweek 22 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Manchester United star has scored nine goals and supplied four assists in 11 matches across all competitions since domestic action resumed.

Rashford's record at Old Trafford this term looks hugely encouraging ahead of visits from both Crystal Palace and Leeds United.

He has averaged 9.1 points per home start, producing seven of his nine goals and two of his three assists at Old Trafford.

Other Red Devil options

Bruno Fernandes (£9.9m) and Luke Shaw (£5.3m) could be worth considering as armband alternatives. 

Fernandes has delivered returns in five successive matches, his best run of form this season.

Indeed, the Portuguese outscored Rashford by 19 points to 12 in Double Gameweek 20.

Shaw’s total of 44 points in his previous six at Old Trafford, meanwhile, is joint-top with Rashford for Erik ten Hag’s side.

Leaning towards Leeds?

Leeds are the only other side to play twice in Gameweek 22, visiting Nottingham Forest prior to their trip to Man Utd.

Wilfried Gnonto (£5.0m) could prove to be a key player, with top scorer Rodrigo (£6.4m) sidelined through injury.

The Italian has three goals across his last five appearances in all competitions. 

Single Gameweek options

Erling Haaland (£12.2m) and Martin Odegaard (£6.9m) are among the best single Gameweek armband options. 

Haaland has scored seven goals for Manchester City since the season resumed, more than any other player.

That includes a strike in the 4-2 win against Tottenham Hotspur in Gameweek 20, City's opponents in the reverse fixture on Sunday.


Odegaard has scored six of his eight goals this term away from home ahead of a visit to Everton.

The Arsenal playmaker has totalled six double-figure returns over the campaign, bettered only by the seven of his compatriot Haaland.
